To generate new knowledge and educate society, within and beyond the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as to the scientific principles that underlie the role of movement in attaining optimal human health and well-being.

By our study of the structural and functional interactions between movement and health, we will:

  • promote the understanding of benefits of physical activity;
  • provide high quality education for undergraduate and graduate students;
  • extend the boundaries of knowledge through innovative and integrative research;
  • translate research results to practical applications beneficial to society.
